I have people spell out words to me too if they do not fit the context in which they are being said which typically means I've mis-read their lips. it's annoying to some people but...it's the best way for me understand them.This is absurd. I'm profoundly deaf. I do not hear anything. I only know how to say letters which is the reason I know the difference between P and B verbally. Just not visually.
My brother said putty, I wanted to believe he said butter but his sentence did not make sense. I had him spell it out. =]
I know this is an old thread, but when I read that, i actually LoL!!She was trying to be funny and said "hi, my name is shoshana, im a dinosaur".
I thought she said "hi, my name is shosana, Im a dirty whore"
so...dinosaur and "dirty whore" look very similar!
